Reduce Pain

I want to tell you a story about one of my clients and his personal training journey. I met Jeremy in November 2007.

Jeremy was only able to swim when we met due to a back injury he picked up in an accident when he was younger. He would aggravate the injury by simply sneezing! He wanted my help to get rid of pain and be able to do things without the fear of hurting himself. I sent him to my trusted Osteopath for a second opinion and we liaised closely while working with Jeremy concurrently.

We started off slowly by using BW as resistance squats, lunges, bends, pushes, pulls and twists. I taught Jeremy the importance of good form in everything he did, emphasising that this form must never be sacrificed for repetitions. We then gradually increased the load, intensity and complexity of the movement patterns during our sessions.

I am going to fast forward now to a couple of weeks ago. Jeremy arrived back in the gym to his first session with me after completing a massive 22-day trek to Annapurna in Nepal (5400ft). We had been doing hard-core endurance sessions to get him ready for this. Gym goers would gawk as I made Jeremy run around the gym with me (65kgs’) on his back during particularly gruelling sessions. Jeremy said that he was able to enjoy the trek and did not really struggle as ‘it was like a walk in the park compared to what you put me though before I left’.

In the time since I have started training Jeremy he has kicked my ass in many a stair workout, ran a fast City to Surf and got the strongest core out of any of my clients. We are now entering into an Olympic lifting program including, what I consider to be, the Granddaddy of all lifts…. the BB Snatch!

Jeremy’s amazing results were made possible because I progressed and regressed all exercises correctly. I offered variety in sessions but always maintained safe, effective exercise prescription, which were focussed on his goals.

Before I started with you guys I couldn’t tie my shoes without pain. I could never have imagined I would now be dead lifting and squatting pain free. Thank you so much.

I grabbed the sides of my jacket and started to breathe in to get the buttons done up and to my surprise I no longer needed to breathe in!!!!! I am so happy. 15 kgs down and i’m pumped about buying a new smaller size jacket soon.

My staff train twice a week with Innervate: once before work and once after. They absolutely love it, they tell all their friends and more importantly all of our clients how amazing we are for putting it on for them. It is well worth the small (tax deductable) spend”

I’ve had such an amazing time training, my body feels completely transformed, I think the last time I was this toned I was like 22! I’ve dropped nearly 5.5kgs and my goal weight is very much in my grasp, my waist has gone from 35” to 29” I am over the moon with these results and we actually have a laugh in-between the intense parts….. which makes it all the more bearable.

It has been great seeing staff reaching their personal goals, becoming fitter and healthier, reducing their stress and having fun in a team environment. I view the training as an investment in the health & happiness of my staff. They definitely appreciate it – I often get thanked or told how much fun they are having. I consider the training part of the formula for happy & engaged staff.
